Supported employment services in Skipton - a success story
There are many success stories of people who have found work with the help of supported employment services. One of the success stories from the Skipton area is Jackie, who has a voluntary job at Scope.
Jackie has had a voluntary job at Scope for many years and is a really well liked member of the team. Having this job gave Jackie a lot of confidence and so about two years ago, Jackie started a new paid job as a cleaner in someone's home.
At first Jackie went to work with a job coach and over about a year learned how to do her job to a really high standard. The job coach withdrew their support until eventually Jackie could do the job herself.
Also at this time Jackie changed her hours of work which meant that she could catch a local bus instead of having to rely on lifts. With support from her job coach, it took Jackie several months to become confident at using the bus, but she now travels to work independently and her employer is really pleased with the job that she does.
Jackie says "Having a paid job and using the bus is really good."
